Please take a moment to introduce yourself and share some details about your Pilot!
My name is KarenS and I am the host of the Edmunds.com Owners Clubs. Please let me know what discussions you would like to see in your Club folder. I will create them ASAP. You may want to take a look through the other clubs to get ideas for discussions.
Looking forward to meeting everyone!
#2 of 129 WOW... This is history in the making

I'm not often the one to be FIRST at anything new, but it looks like I'm the first member of the Pilot Owner's Club here at Edmunds!
My name is 'chiefpilot' (actually, it's really John) and I live and work in sunny (!!) south Florida. My wife and I purchased our Evergreen Pearl EX-L on June 4th and just recently passed the 1100 mile point.
Thus far, we really LOVE the Pilot and are very glad that we didn't replace our six-year-old Ford Explorer with another one. I hope that all of you enjoy your Pilot as much as we do.

Hello KarenS & fellow Piloteers,
Want to thank KarenS for her gracious hosting (I remember when in the Ody forums...last I visited it was XXVIII....) and look forward to more of the same..
Recently got an EGP EX for Dr. Mom. She loves it. Worst feature of the vehicle is that her lunch crowd has more seat time in it than me!

#5 of 129 I got my black EX on June 1st
Aug 07, 2002 (3:15 pm)
and it now has 2700 miles on it. No problems so far. My previous vehicle was a '99 Honda Accord LX-V6 coupe. The Pilot seems so much bigger and yet it's nearly identical in length. Of course the Pilot is 7 inches wider so I had to do a little tidying up in the garage before I brought it home. I have already used about every imaginable seat configuration for one reason or another and really like the flexibility.

My wife and I recently drove home in our Evergreen Pearl EX. We opted for the full woodgrain interior. (Yeah I know it's plastic!) but we think it really sets off the interior. Got the foglights, too. Nice & bright! I sell Hondas' too and everyone's razzing me about my "demo" but I paid money like everyone else, and no they did not give me one cent of a discount either. Too bad my wife gets to drive it everyday and I get to drive only on Sundays. God, I wish I could afford two of those things!

#8 of 129 Have Black LX

I have Black LX that now has 2K miles on it. Live in SoCal. I've installed Mud Guard, roof rack myself, and have towing package on order which I will install myself.
I love it, we took it camping and me and my little girl slept in the car with both seat down and it was reasonably comfortable, beats sleeping on the ground.
#9 of 129 Ambient Temp.
Aug 17, 2002 (12:19 pm)
I'm thinking about pursching a Pilot. I was looking through the hand out and didn't see any reference to an ambient temperature indicator. Can someone please tell me if one is installed.
Aug 19, 2002 (6:01 am)
Yes... the Pilot has an outside temperature readout in the instrument cluster, integrated with the odometer / multiple trip meters.
